Travelling With Alice interview

Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Alice from Alice’s Adventures on Earth: stuntwoman, travel writer, CEO and conservationist!

Hi Alice, could you tell us all a little bit about yourself?

Hi, I’m Alice Ford I am a confident, curious and adventurous young woman. An entrepreneur, athlete, environmentalist and host. I own my own company and also work as a stuntwoman in Hollywood. With a Master’s Degree in Environmental Management I am on a mission to share my love for adventure, travel and conservation with all I come in contact with.

I have my own travel blog called Alice’s Adventures on Earth and have visited over 30 countries. One of my favourite parts about traveling is getting to be the storyteller when I get home by writing and making videos of my experiences. I have always had a love for experiencing new things, meeting new people and learning new things. Never the one to turn down an adventure or a chance to see something few have. I have always shared my passions for protecting our planet. With a spirit for discovery I hope to visit every continent and every country before I leave this Earth.

Where is home for you?

Home is Los Angeles.

Where in the world are you right now?

Right now I am just North of San Francisco, working on the next Transformers Movie – Bumblebee.

How long have you been travelling?

Since before I can remember. My dad was a mountaineer and an avid explorer and traveller always taking me and my sister and mom along for adventures.

Family mountain hiking

A very tough question, but what is your favourite country?

Portugal but Cambodia is also very high on my list.

What was your least favourite place? Why?

That is a hard one, but I will probably go with Beijing. China has some immense culture and history but until they get their pollution issues under control I will really have a hard time of enjoying it. I also really loath people that have no sense of personal space or hygiene.

What is the strangest journey that you have taken?

I think I equate strange with adventure so I don’t have anything that sticks out for this question. I have had some interesting journeys like following a local bag maker through alleyways and apartment buildings in Dubai’s gold souks to find the perfect knock off designer bag. People can be strange but that is one of the fun parts about traveling.

What has been the best experience that you have had whilst travelling?

Glamping on the edge of the ocean on Madeira Island in Portugal: You can read about it here.

What is the scariest encounter that you have had whilst travelling?

I have been uncomfortable many times while traveling, usually due to my own insecurities. I have also been scared from dumb things I’ve done to myself like the time in Jamaica I did some flips off a raft with some local kids only to hit my head on the bottom of the ocean – thank goodness the skin on my forehead grew back. I have yet to be physically scared while traveling, but I have also had many bad things happen to me and don’t get freaked out easily.

What is your number one ‘bucket list’ item that you haven’t yet done?

Hiking Mt. Roraima in Venezuela it’s the tallest Table Mountain in the world and inspired the Land of the Lost.

Do you have a packing list? How much does your luggage weigh?

I guess I have a mental packing list which all started from the lists I was given as a child to pack for sleepaway camp. I definitely run through all the things I will need which change depending on where I am going. The most important items are always my camera gear.

I would say my luggage weighs less than 50 lbs.

What can you not leave home without?

A good attitude and my sense of adventure.

Can you recommend a book that’s great to read whilst on holiday?

So many. Dark Lands is great; Backpacks & Bra Straps. I’m obsessed with the Pendergrast Series by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, I also just started Big Magic.

Do you have a favourite app for travel?

Google Maps.

What is your best tip for anyone about to go travelling?

Go with the flow and be open to trying something new. Get out of your comfort zone.

Where are you going to go to next?

Outside of some local trips to National Parks and probably Napa Valley. I will be in Puerto Rico in February and somewhere TBD over the holidays.
